One Taiwanese tourist has been killed and 22, including the local driver, have been injured after a landslide buried a tourist bus on Saturday in southeast China's Fujian province.

The bus was hit by falling debris on a highway in Longyan City at around 10:43 AM local time, partially burying the bus and causing it to flip over, state broadcast CCTV said.Rescuers immediately rushed to the scene, transporting the 22 injured to local hospitals, CCTV said.

"I was taking a nap and then I opened my eyes to see that all of a sudden mud came falling down, and then the bus was overturned. In an instant, I went totally blank," survivor Wong Lan-Kam told CCTV.

Among the 21 Taiwanese tourists injured, 2 are now critically injured, CCTV said.

Authorities have launched an investigation into the incident, CCTV said.
